Sample at Industry Night at HomeBrewCon. Very floral, spicy with a cereal graininess to it. Decent.

jgb9348 (5527) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a light copper glow and a very thin, single centimetre tall off-white soapy head. Aroma of grass, light malt, earth, wheat and some more rather pungent malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and light flavours at first with some coriander seed, light curacao, bunches of wheat and some complexity from yeast, but rather mild. Aftertaste shows a lot of dry characteristics with some light hops showing through, but also some dry floral elements and a bit of grass, all finishing with a nice coriander seed freshness and even a hint of super light clove. Overall, a decent saison that is definitely on the lighter side, but not a bad beer at all. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, Eye Street NW), DC on 23-June-2015 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington almost a year later on 31-May-2016.

Can from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Hazy gold body with thin head. Nose is hops, honey, spices. Taste is similar of malts, spices and bread. Citrus finish.

DocLock (9504) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Hazy straw with off-white head. Nose was hops, citrus, some yeasty funk. Tasted like a hoppier blonde ale, not enough funk or yeasty flavor for me, came off as a heavier blonde ale. Seemed mailed in.

egajdzis (5959) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma hay, toasted malts, citrus, some toffee, clove, spices, honey. Taste of honey, citrus, toast, hay, earth, spices, coriander dry finish.

kramer (5763) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a two finger frothy white head. The nose is slightly sweet with some honey, bready malt, lightly fruity, a bit of yeastiness. The flavor at its base is pretty nice, a rather classic saison at first, but then finishes with a honey and floral like sweetness. Not sure I dig the sweetness in this one, it doesn’t seem to fit with the style for me. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, there are good and bad points to this one, but it is quite drinkable.

JDBaker11058 (1790) - Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2015
appearance: hazy light straw, bright white head, medium lacing. aroma: sweet grains, light funk, slightly floral and tropical hop notes, with some banana and bubblegum that’s reminiscent of a hefeweizen. taste: as the aroma indicates. finish: lingering sweetness, a bit spicy, with delicate floral hops drying things out a bit. notes: Very flavorful for a low-abv beer. A little overly sweet and missing some of the saison funk I usually look for, but it was overall quite nice.

scottw86 (1157) - Maryland, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Poured a clear yellow color with a white head that faded quickly. Big fruity aroma with banana and yeast. Slight lemon and skunk too. Taste is crisp and with light fruit. Some banana. Aftertaste is a bit like cardboard with some lemon. Overall very refreshing, not bad.

Iphonephan (5833) - McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2015
From a 12oz can. Pours a hazy pale gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of bubblegum. Floral flavors with a bit of a hop zing. Decent.
